"On the whole I am inclined to think that a witch should not kiss. Perhaps it is the not being kissed that makes her a witch; perhaps the source of her power is the breath of loneliness around her." - Emma Donoghue

S., 24, Italian. Kate is my internet handle and you can call me that. People scare me so I'll probably never talk to you even if I think you're cool, and if I do it'll be very awkward. English is my second language; I apologize for any mistakes.

I love a lot of things, including fairy tales, mythology, ladies who make music, ladies in general, history, languages. I watch a lot of movies and tv, I ship all the things, and I love Pokémon a lot.
 



But, as many thought whenever they saw the graceful figure soaring through the air, it took a great hero and a terrible villain to make it all come about. And her name was Maleficent.

FAIRY TALE MEME ∙ [1/3] Locations/Kingdoms ∙ Sleeping Beauty’s Castle (from La Belle au bois dormant/The Sleeping Beauty by Charles Perrault)

At the end of a hundred years the throne had passed to another family from that of the sleeping princess. One day the king’s son chanced to go a-hunting that way, and seeing in the distance some towers in the midst of a large and dense forest, he asked what they were. His attendants told him in reply the various stories which they had heard. Some said there was an old castle haunted by ghosts, others that all the witches of the neighborhood held their revels there. The favorite tale was that in the castle lived an ogre, who carried thither all the children whom he could catch. There he devoured them at his leisure, and since he was the only person who could force a passage through the wood nobody had been able to pursue him.

There is an evil in this world—hatred and betrayal.
And I cannot keep you from it.

The fairies came to the celebration, and as it was ending they presented the child with gifts. The one promised her virtue, the second one gave beauty, and so on, each one offering something desirable and magnificent. The eleventh fairy had just presented her gift when the thirteenth fairy walked in. She was very angry that she had not been invited and cried out, “Because you did not invite me, I tell you that in her fifteenth year, your daughter will prick herself with a spindle and fall over dead.”

Heroines of Czech Fairytale Movies [1/?]

Princess Rose from How to Wake a Sleeping Beauty (“Jak se budí princezny”, Czechoslovakia, 1977) [x] the film’s tag

Princess Rose (played by Marie Horáková, voiced by Naďa Konvalinková) is an only child of her parents, the King and Queen of the Rose Kingdom. According to a curse put on her by her mother’s sister Melanie, when Rose will reach her seventeenth year she will prick her finger and sleep forever. Inspite of the grim prediction (and her parents’ overprotectiveness) Rose grows into a sweet and free-spirited young woman. Her parents decide to marry her off, hoping that Rose might escape the curse by leaving the Rose Kingdom, and they invite the neighboring royal family. However, Rose unknowingly spoils their plans by falling in love with the younger of two Princes - Prince Jaroslav - who is not the heir to the throne and cannot take Rose to his kingdom as his bride. But in the end it’s Rose’s love and trust what helps Jaroslav to find his own courage and save everyone in the Rose Kingdom.

Modern take on FairyTales



Now find out the truth.

(Source: lukecastellan, via droo216)



You know the Tale. Now find out the Truth. Evil has a beginning.

I know you, I walked with you once upon a dream.
I know you, The gleam in your eyes is so familiar a gleam.
Yes, I know it's true, that visions are seldom all they seem,
But if I know you, I know what you'll do.
You'll love me at once, the way you did once upon a dream
